Tasty steak a talking point
MOUTH-WATERING steak is on most patrons’ minds when they head to the Grand Hotel at Biggenden for a meal.
Grand Hotel proprietors Ivan Groves and Paul Dowling offer country-style meals and, living smack bang in the middle of cattle country, steak is always a winner.
Ivan said people who came back to eat with friends commented on the quality of the locally grown beef and the value for money.
Popular with ravenous diners was the Hungry Man’s Steak.
Paul said it was a big piece of rump that hung over the sides of the plate
“We get phone calls from people going through town for our Bloody Big Burger,” he added.
“It’s steak, bacon, egg and salad on garlic bread.”
The Grand Hotel is described on its website as a really friendly pub with clean accommodation and a large restaurant.
Ivan said Friday night was popular as there were always two different meal specials on offer.
“We can cater for any function, big or small, and have seating for 60 people along with a half-shaded beer garden for any party,” he said.
The once-green pub has been painted on the outside while the palms have been removed at the front to make way for a concreted area and seating.
Packed lunches can be arranged for workers or visitors stopping overnight.
The kitchen is open each day from noon–1.30pm for lunches, and for dinner from 6–7.30pm from Monday to Thursday and 6–8pm on Friday and Saturday nights.
The kitchen is closed on Sunday nights.
If you need any functions catered for, give Ivan or Paul a call on 4127 1252.
